Living Otherwise: Buddhist Photography on the New Silk Road

Images of Precariousness

As we read the images for the precariousness that comes from the absence of legal rights to the city we see that they show us how people eke out a living by sorting through scrap metal and water carried in 50 gallon drums. They also show us the triumphs and failures of precarious life. Women proudly displaying crocheted table clothes that they had made together; children clasping their mothers close. When people are resource-poor, they are forced to share each other's pains and joys in deep ways. Their survival depends on it.
